Jenson back at McLaren for Monaco

We thought that Jenson Button was done and dusted as an F1 driver – and it seems that had similar thoughts, but McLaren Honda did the obvious thing and convinced him to make a one-off comeback for Monaco, replacing Fernando Alonso, who will be busy in Indianapolis.

“Although the McLaren-Honda MCL32 hasn’t begun the season well, I think it may be more suited to Monaco than to the faster circuits that Fernando [Alonso] and Stoffel [Vandoorne] have raced it on so far this season,” Button said. “I realise we won’t have a realistic chance of repeating my 2009 victory, but I think we’ll have a opportunity to score world championship points, which will be very valuable to the team in terms of constructors’ rankings.”
